IICP Education and Training: IICP Professional Knowledge Seminar - Therapy as collaboration and collaboration as therapy


IICP Professional Knowledge Seminar
with Rolf Sundet
Therapy as collaboration and collaboration as therapy:

On working collaboratively in the age of evidence.

The aim of the day is to present perspectives on therapy that places collaboration at the centre of therapeutic work. What does this imply for health care workers, social workers and other whose work is confronted with mental health issues? Based in research and clinical experience, ideas, perspectives and simple models are suggested as possible inspirations for persons in this kind of work. The use of clients feedback is at the core of this work and points to therapy as collaboration. At the same time, it is possible also to ask the question if participating in a collaborative practice have therapeutics effects in itself? This connects this work to the growing recovery-orientation within health and social services with its focus on empowerment, and questions around social justice. Therapy is part of the welfare that societies offers their citizens, and with that, part of the political discussions and dilemmas in our society. For health care and social workers, the concept of evidence marks an area that raise questions around how to both realise therapy as collaboration, and at the same time fulfil the demands of supplying an evidence based practice.
